I've never paid for live television, and Sling TV wasn't changing my mind. The $20-a-month app that streams live TV on the internet just didn't have anything that interested me.

Remember that impossibly-bad sounding idea of renting a movie on-demand for $30? (But only if it's not too successful!) Well it's not bad enough to fly under the radar of theater owners, infuriated by the thought of lost profits.
In 1995, the AMC Grand opened in Dallas. It had 24 screens and it changed the movie theater industry: It was the United States' first megaplex. Sadly, the theater will close on November 30. [Dallas News]
